Going Nordic

Cross-country skiing is one of my very favorite things to do in the whole wide world.  I love the quiet, the remoteness, and the fact that it's one of those magic things our family can do all enjoy doing together.  With an 8-year span between oldest and youngest, such activities are hard to find!

And were doubly-blessed to have friends who enjoy a nordic adventure just as much as we do!  Because if there's anything more fun than one family skiing together, it's two!

My favorite thing about skiing with kids is that they talk non-stop. It's hard to believe that they're as tired as they say they are when they never stop yacking.  I think kids have two set of lungs - one for exercise (easily exhausted) and one for jabbering endlessly about Minecraft and Halo and Pokemon (which never, ever, ever run out of breath).

Mama tries to keep up... and those girls are not getting lighter with age.
We had a glorious afternoon the the Uintas together!
11 pair of skis with kids and dogs romping in the distance - now that's my definitely of a good afternoon.
